Report: Trump plans launch of competitor to Fox News

Fox News’ behavior on election day and in the aftermath has infuriated many of its own fans and invoked the ire of Donald Trump, and according to a new report, Trump is planning to retaliate.

Axios reported Thursday that Trump is planning to “wreck” Fox News by launching his own conservative online media channel.

Fox News shocked its Conservative fans by calling Arizona for Biden long before even liberal media outlets made the call — and with tens of thousands of ballots left to be counted.

Fox refused to recant the call in the aftermath, further frustrating fans that believe the network is no longer on Trump’s side. Trump himself has criticized Fox a number of times in the runup to the election, but the decided leftward turn during the election appears to have been the final straw.

“‘He plans to wreck Fox. No doubt about it,’ said a source with detailed knowledge of Trump’s intentions,” Axios reported. According to the source, Trump will not likely launch a cable news channel, instead, focusing on an online presence.

Axios reported that the source laid out Trump’s plan:

  • There’s been lots of speculation about Trump starting a cable channel. But getting carried on cable systems would be expensive and time-consuming.
  • Instead, Trump is considering a digital media channel that would stream online, which would be cheaper and quicker to start.
  • Trump’s digital offering would likely charge a monthly fee to MAGA fans. Many are Fox News viewers, and he’d aim to replace the network — and the $5.99-a-month Fox Nation streaming service, which has an 85% conversion rate from free trials to paid subscribers — as their top destination.

A high-quality alternative to Fox News would likely be an instant success, as Fox viewers become increasingly discontent with the direction the formerly right-wing news source has taken.

Trump has already taken to promoting alternative conservative media sources such as One America News Network and Newsmax due to Fox’s apparent determination to undermine Trump at every turn.

I watch a few loyal shows on fox but chris wallace, brett baire, cavuto, the owners liberal sons and their treatment of The Judge and past treatment of O’Reilly have shown me their true colors and so the rest of fox is not going to be watched by me.

I love everything President Trump does! If Biden wins, we will need a conservative network to tell us the truth about what is going on. I have switched to Newsmax – FOX has become a laughing stock because of the democrats they choose to make comment. They’re ridiculous!

No cable watch Newsmax and OAN free on Pluto TV online, use Parler instead of Twitter, Watching some of my favorite you tube channels on Rumble now. I would watch if free(retired)

Fox News is such a total disappointment. I previously had no problem hearing fair and balanced reporting from both perspectives but now Fox has been taken in an unbalanced direction. What a shame. I am done and look forward to a breath of fresh air.

If we could do it without a cost. I am a widow and already paying too much for cable now. That is why I haven’t signed up for Fox Nation and am going without a lot of the channels I love.

Yep, Fox is done, let’s hope the CBS & NBC get the picture that the time is up also. Just a bunch of lier’s you can clearly see that they can’t stand having the truth come out, YOUR FIRED!!!

I have already switched to OAN as I’m very disappointed in Fox News. Hannity and Carlson are the only ones I care to listen to. I recently heard about Parler and will check that out. I would subscribe to Mr. Trumps channel. I stopped by subscription to the Boston Globe and when asked the reason why, I told the rep that I couldn’t read it anymore because it was not fair reporting. The one sided media is destroying our country.

I agree with you about the the Globe since election night they use words like baselees unconfirmed, no evidence when describing rampant voter fraud.

Yes, Fox is getting more and more like CNN, abc, nbc, cbs, msnbc. There are some Anchors I like Sean Hannity, Judge Jeanine, Mark Levin, Tucker, Huckabee, Ainsly, Maria
Bartiromo, Brian Kilmmead Laura Ingraham etc. I have been watching Fox since the beginning 24-7. It was the only one I trusted now I now watch a lot more of Newsmax..

we have already stopped watching Fox. Could not stand Juan Williams, Donna Brasile, Wallace, Cavuto. The whole of Fox programming has gone down. When they censured Judge Pirro it was the last straw. Would welcome a Trump channel

Since the debate I no longer love FOX News, Facebook. or Twitter. I believe that the worse are Cavuto, Wallace, Bret and Juan Williams. We will support whatever Trump sets up for Trumpers (conservatives)

Jack (@guest_1073343)

Fox is not Fair and balanced any longer, even the morning crew has changed Tucker, Hannity Lori Shannon are the only ones that are worth watching in the evening.
NewsMax needs to hire all of them.
I will follow Trump with anything he starts up,

Well, I have already stopped watching fox. I will miss Tucker Shawn, Judge Perino and the next generation But I have to take a stand. There is only so much Bull S–t I can take. I gave up on Chris Wallace after the debate, Neil Cavuto is just Brain dead. Enough is enough I would rather watch the Hallmark channel.

I am very disappointed in Fox network. I only watch Tucker, Hannity, and Laura on the week days, and Levin, Judge Jeanine, and Jesse on the weekends. Most of the other shows have turned against my beliefs and I would prefer to not listen to their nonsense. My husband gets upset at this change and prefers not to watch Fox News at all.

I stopped watching Fox after Megan Kelly did her hatchet job on Trump during the first debate. I stopped watching all the media because I saw the deceptive propaganda. I like Hannity, Tucker, Jeanine, Mark Levin, but I refuse to turn Fox on to watch them. I would welcome a Trump channel knowing it would be truth.

Octavia Drigo (@guest_1073354)

I have already loose faith in Fox. I love the famous five with Juan out, Hannity and Tucker are great too. So that sounds great to me.

I wish the President would just help make Newsmax stronger by talking with their host like he did with fox. When Tucker, Hannity, and Ingraham move over to Newsmax, I will never watch fox again!

I know longer watch Fox. It use to be the only news channel I thought was honest. Wrong! When Chris Wallace and Donna Brazile came on, I went off.

Rene' H. Donk (@guest_1073358)

It is too bad that after the old man let his sons run the station FOX drastically changed direction in reporting and not in the right direction. It turned truth into a farce and barrage of insults on the intellect of the viewers. I really missed Glenn Beck but then at the end Glen saw the light and saw that America was steered in the wrong direction.
Over de past 4 years I turned to AON and or News Max. How is it that Biden “The big guy” get away with kickbacks from foreign countries and bankrolls his son Hunter shady business deals. While Trump was hunted down on drummed up charges for all this 4 years. The swamp is deeper than we all thought. The tentacles spread into the FBI, CIA, IRS and what not. All that money spend we the taxpayer had to cough up and as soon as Biden is in he increases the taxes. Oh joy and we the citizens have to carry the whimsies of the left again. It is a never ending circle of doom the left present us. MAGA at this moment seems but just a dream. So yeah change that switch to other stations is very welcome in this household. That for now is watching “leave it to beaver” reruns (lol)

Yes I’d pay to trumps. Online network. Fox has gone liberal and lost me as a fan. Tucker hannity. Laura. And shannon should leave fox before it’s too late. The trump haters like Juan. Wallace. Martha. Bret. Should leave and go to CNN. Where they Belong. Never thought I’d see this happen what a shame….

Fox News is done for me. I recently found out management changed and now run by a Democrat. Fox and Friends might as well be CNN or NBC. I now watch NewsMax and have found a former Fox and Friends Anchor there and there will be many more Fox people leaving🤬

John Davies (@guest_1073379)

Yes I would leave Fox it said that our news networks out there are reliable . I need some kind of News Network that is truthful and does not make stories up where ratings. They are supposed to be news networks but they make stories up to bring their ratings up it’s all about money today in the news this is disgusting

Anne (@guest_1073382)

Prefer Fox News over mainstream but have noticed a change. Enjoy Hannity and Tucker but no longer trust the news reporting. Not happy concerning Judge Jeanine
being cancelled. Plan to change to an unbiased news channel.
